I would like to know if it is possible to install VMware ESXi 4.1 on Dell PowerEdge T610 but using UEFI (not BIOS)... I have seen some references on the net saying that ESXi 4.1 is UEFI aware OS ? while this post does not list it as UEFI aware...

I actually tried it and although installation goes through, I cannot "Add Boot Option" in UEFI boot options. It sees Hypervisor as an option but there is no boot files listed to select from...

So I am wondering is this is possible at all... Anyone?

I decided to ask the same question on VMware communities and got the response that ESXi v4.1 does not support UEFI
